Chicken Fajitas

This is a Jamie Oliver Recipe thats a Favourite in our house.

These really do taste even better the next day when the flavours have developed more, you could replace the chicken breast with steak or even mince.


  • 1 red pepper

  • 1 medium onion

  • 2 skinless chicken breasts, preferably organic

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

  • a small pinch of ground cumin

  • 2 limes

  • olive oil

  • salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 4 tortillas

  • 150 mls of sour cream or yoghurt

  • guacamole

  • 100 gm grated cheese

Put the griddle pan on high heat.

Halve and deseed the pepper and cut it into thin strips.

Peel, halve, and finely slice the onion.

Slice the chicken lengthways into long strips roughly the same size as your pepper strips.

Put the peppers, onion and chicken into a bowl with the paprika and cumin.

Squeeze over the juice of half a lime, drizzle with some olive oil, season with a pinch of salt and pepper and mix well.

Put to one side to marinate for 5 minutes or so while you make your salsa.

Salsa Ingredients

Finely chop the chilli. Roughly chop the tomatoes and the coriander, stalks and all.

Put the chilli and tomatoes into a second bowl with a good pinch of salt and pepper and the juice of 1 lime. Add some extra virgin olive oil, then stir in your chopped coriander.

Use a pair of tongs to put all the pieces of pepper, onion, and chicken into your preheated pan to cook for 6-8 minutes, until the chicken is golden and cooked through.

As the pan will be really hot, keep turning the pieces of chicken and vegetables over so they don't burn - you just want them to lightly char grill to give you a lovely flavour.

Warm the tortillas up in the microwave or a warm dry pan.

Divide your warmed tortillas between the serving plates.

Halve the remaining lime and squeeze the juice over the sizzling chicken mixture.

Divide the chicken mixture beween the tortillas or lettuce cups

Top with cheese, salsa, and sour cream. 

       Enjoy !
